Most of the earliest forms of football were named because they were played on foot. Peasants played most of their sports on foot; aristocrats played many of theirs on horseback. Thus, games played on foot were called “football,” whether they had anything to do with kicking a ball or not. Indeed, many of the earliest forms of football involved carrying balls in an attempt to get across goal lines passed some opposing team or individual players.
